sat and drank coffee a fair bit, and I got to do my own thing while the rest of the crew went out -- went riding and finally did our taxes.
Bill arrived for a quick visit the day Pearl and Mark left. The weather turned hot and we had a fantastic party with some of Bill's crew and our mutual friends. I had the week off, and the heat meant lots of beach time. I also did some stuff around the house, played with princesses, hung around playgrounds and Tannis got some breaks -- she's done magic with the flowers on the yard. Along the way we managed to say good-bye to our old car and replace it with a shiny Honda.
